She's thinking about having a SNACK...
not a good healthy snack although she did fleetingly run through a number of suitable ones...
As she's reaching for that pretzel bag on the refrigerator, she's thinking "I can't believe pretzels have more calories and salt in them than sun chips...damn, the pretzels are SO much more satisfying though...ok, I'll only have a very small amount..." in her mind she's going through she had to eat yesterday and this morning KNOWING she REALLY doesn't NEED these damn pretzels, and then fleetingly, pitifully, justifies this unnecessary splurge by thinking "I did lose those 3 lbs last week..."
Ah, here it comes, all the inevitable, predictable thoughts..."That little bit of pretzels WAS NOT ENOUGH and NOT worth splurging!" "I ate WAY TOO MUCH for dinner last night!" "I have GOT to eat smaller portions!" "Just because it all taste's SO GOOD doesn't mean I need to gorge!" "Geez, THINK before you fill your plate." "A little bit of each thing...IS ENOUGH!" That 3 lbs is going to be back before I can BLINK...why do I sabotage myself like this when I'm SO close to my goal?!" ARGGGGG!!!!
This morning is a bit different...she's actually watching what she's eating and LISTENING to her urges rather than giving into them...
it's NOT EASY but she knows she's WORTH it

We're moving this Friday...the sweat equity method; renting a truck and with the help of friends (bless their hearts, I don't think ANYONE actually ENJOYS the process)! It will be really nice once we're there and all this physical packing, cleaning, organizing, etc. is OVER!
While all this is going on I've decided to take a small break to touch base with all my SparkFriends!
I'm using my nutrition tracker EVERY DAY as well as trying to fluctuate my calorie intake at least every other day in an attempt to break through this plateau I've been on for the entire month now! It's gotten rather tiresome to say the least...in addition to that the instep on my left foot is so painful I can hardly STAND IT and my mid back is preventing me from sleeping on my back or sides for very long and I absolutely LOVE sleeping on my back
Needless to say, while I'm tracking my nutrition, and packing every day, I am not working out! With all the bending, stretching, hoisting, stacking, stooping, and lifting that goes with packing...I'm so done for by the end of the day I can barely find energy enough to drag myself to bed
The one thing that bothers me the most right now is that I don't get much chance to get on SP and chat, encourage, share ideas, and hear from all of you every day and I REALLY MISS THAT!!!! I TRY to at least sign in, spin the wheel, answer the trivia questions (3 out of 3 correct this morning!), and track my nutrition. I DO a QUICK scan of my Friend Feed but don't have the time to read your blogs and respond! ....BIG SIGH
Oh, did I mention that I won't be signing in at all for a couple of days at least because of the move? We're switching internet providers and although the computers will be in the house, they won't be on set up on tables or hooked up until sometime late Saturday! So, Thursday will be the last time I'm online until sometime next week Ok, I'm going to end this blog now as I am SO TIRED I'm afraid I'll just keep rambling on and on and on...
